From stranger dwellings distant wide, 'Mid sturdy, towering pines, Where thick stand cabins side by side, * Now o'er the golden mines— Scarce two moons since, in coy retreat, Far from the crowd and jar, We reared, in wood retirement sweet, Our cabin on the bar. And from our six-pancd window here, O'erlooking vale and town. We watch in moonlight calm and clear, The dancing stars go down ; All cresied o'er with silver dew, High heav'nward shining far, Proud mountain tops look down to view Our cabin on the bar. Far, far removed from older friends, Wide desert plains between, Rude strangeness here, enchantment lends The rugged mountain scene : Though long loved ones do never rove ^ To cheer us here afar, Strange though it seem, indeed we love Our cabin on the bar. " Our genial fire-place blazing bright, Lights no vindictive sheet .All reeking with invectives blight, Our saddened gaze to meet ; All teeming with envenomed taunt, And tales of brothers' war, Malignant papers rarely haunt Our cabin on the bar. Here sit we by our fireside light, In savage peaceful clime, ■Far from the enligtened, Christian fight, The beauty (?) of the time ; Highwaymen ne'er with civil gun— To -drag us off to war— (Demand our cash or life, within Our cabin on the bar. Fresh, steaming dailies never come, Crammed with conflicting lies, To fret us in our mountain home 'Neath Idahoan skies ; Of barb'rous men, bedyed in sin, Who hated bloody war, E'er peace were treason, we read, in Our cabin oa the bar. When new-made friends do gather near Our footlight's gladsome ray, With orient tales of homeland cheer, At quiet close of day ; Each in his turn, his yarn to spin, Like some seafaring tar, Loud rings the merry laughter in Oar cabin on fc te bar. With all arranged forbachy ease, Apartments all combined, Where starch conventionalities Their elements ne'er find— " Housework done up " with slighting strike, Our things pitched here and " thar," We wonder, would our sweethearts like Our cabin on the bar! When we. our wayward footsteps turn Homeward, in future years, To quiet anxious friends' concern, 'Mid joyful smiles and tears, Our lingering thoughts will often dwell Where we now musing are, We'll evermore remember well Our cabin on the bar. A. J. Buena Vista Bar, Idaho Territory, January 11,1866 . 4 Gkn. Grant, in 1859.—The following ad vertisement, from a copy of the Weekly Tel egraph, a small advertising sheet, published in St. Louis, by Wm. R. Sloss, of date March 12, 1858, has been republished by one of our San Francisco exchanges. The rapid ad vancement of one member of the firm of " Boggs & Grant " is too patent to everybody to need further comment: H. BOGGS. U. S. GRANT. BOGGS & GRANT, General Agents for selling, bartering, real and personal property, notes, bonds, and other securities ; borrow ing or loaning of money on real estate or other good security; collecting of rents, renting of houses, collecting of notes, bills, accounts, or other demands. Office, No. 35 Pine street, St. Louis, Missouri. One of " our girls," who is earnestly striv ing to obtain light, asks the meaning of the 11 G " in masonic emblems, and asks if it don't mean "girls," "for," says Ähe, "you can't get along without them somewhere in your Àu&titutiou." " Marriage," said au unfortunate husband, *"is the grave-yard of love." " Yes," replied his wile, " and you men are the grave-dig gers." The Wilmington (N. C.) Journal says if Admiral Farragut comes there " he may get hurt in the end of his name 1" The following from the Denver News refers to an atmospherical principle, which should be remembered in Idaho as well as Colorado, in estimating the true state of the atmos phere with the thermometer : Atmospherical. —Thethermometer or heat measurer, (from the two Greek words, Ther me, beat, and metron, a measure,) varies considerably in different latitudes and alti tudes. Zero, according to Fahrenheit, who never had the opportunity of experiencing an extra severe climate, was supposd to be the coldest point the mercury could show, but the experiments of Celsius, Reaumur, and other thermometrical savans, haveshowu that the quicksilvercan be forced to fallthirty-nine degrees still lower, and that then it freezes. The thermometer being affected by the alti tude of the place, the radiation of solar rays, the " lightness of the air," or the density, so to speak, of " the blanket of the atmosphere," it follows that so many degrees above or be low zero, in Denver, for instance, is merely a relative indication of the heat or cold indica ted by the same rise or fail in Black Hawk or Empire. The temperature being the same, the thermometer falls 20° for every mile of elevation. Hence, though that ingenious in strument indicated 23° below zero, Sunday morning last in Central, it shouldn't follow philosophically that it was, abstractly speak ing, colder there than at the same time here when our thermometer indicated a much higher figure. Denver. —How like »picture of death does Denver look these nights at a late hour, with its pallid pall of snow, and the clouds of a moonless sky the only mourners. It hasn't been duller for a long, long time about our streets of nights than during the week just closing. After theater time a shivering strag gler scarcely can be met, from F to Ferry, and as for sleighingparties like two winters since, (when Capt. Powers and party gave tone to things,) there's not a tinkling bell brought but to serenade the " sable goddess " from sundown even to sunrise. In '63 we used to while away the time by throwing snow-balls, and staring at the ladies ; but these latter days^he latter have grown quite shy to cir culate, and the snowball in the hand seems to have become the symbol less of delight than death, for the more 'tis grasped the faster it melts away.—[Denver News. Idaho. -Perhaps the most noticeable mining development of the past year, upon this coast, has been that of Idaho, embracing the trhee districts of the Boise Basin, and the Owyhee. The region in' which .they are located is em braced between the headwaters of the upper Columbia, or Snake River, and one of its principal southern tributaries known as the Owyhee. The central portion of this region or the Boise Basin, is situated about one hundred and fifty miles a little east of north of Star City, Humboldt county, Nevada.— Some thirty arastras were at work in South Boise last Summer. There are now some eight or ten mills, either running or about to start, at Owyhee and Boise Basin, and several others upon which the work of construction has just commenced. A very considerable amount of bullion may be expected from Idaho another season. It is thought that the quartz mines will compare favorably with those of any region yet opened.— [S. F. Mi ning Journal. The Bullion Crop of 1864.—There was received, during the year 1864, at San Fran cisco, from the mines of this State, from Oregon and Victoria, from Washoe and Mexi co, the sum of $54,047,238. The amount of treasure shipped from the State daring the same period was.....................$55,707,201 Total shipped in 1863............... 46,071,920 Excess this year.......................$ 9,635,281 The Enterprise says that about $10,000,000 in bullion has been shipped by the Virginia office of Wells, Fargo & Co. alone, during the past year. That paper further estimates that fully ,$15,000,000 additional has been sent forward from Gold Hill, Silver City, Dayton, Carson, lleese River, Esmeralda and Hum boldt. The entire gold and silver product of Nevada during the past year, would give a total aggregate of not less than $25,000,000, for the mines of Nevada.— [F. F. M. Journal. It is a remarkable fact that pet-sons losing themselves in the forest, or in a snow-storm manifest invariably a tendency to turn round towards the left, to the extent even of event ually moving in a circle. The explanation of this is found probably in the fact that the limbs and muscles of the right side are bet ter developed than those of the left. Shoe makers say that as a general thing, the light foot is somewhat larger than the left and that the right boot wears out first. Under the ex citement felt when one is lost, and in the ab sence of any guiding line, the superior energy of the right limbs throws the pedestrian in sensibly around to the left. The following is the authorized scale ef commissions adopted by the S. F. Stock and Exchange Board: Sale at 1 dollar up to 10 dollars...........'....$0 26 per foot Sale at 10 dollars up to 25 dollars............... 60 per foot Sale at 25 dollars up to 50 dollars............ 1 00 per foot Sale at 50 dollars up to 100 dollars............ 1 50 per foot Bale at 100 dollars up to 200 dollars............ 2 50 per foot Sale at 200 dollars up t® 400 dollars............ 5 00 per foot Sale at 400 dollars up to 600 dollars............ 6 00 per foot Sale at 600 dollars up to 800 dollars............ 7 50 per foot Legal Tender Notes and Bonds, on par.........% per cent Bills of Exchange, on net amount...............% per cent Mint Certificates, on net amount ..................% per cent Specie, on net'amount.................................% p6 r cent It is reported that Heenan wants to fight Mace in Canada, and will allow him $1,500 for expenses. From this it appears that the rumors of the " Boy's " physical deterioratior were groundless. Religious Notices.- Rev. Father A. Z.
